The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday claimed that the people who left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) destroyed the party.
According to Wike, the same people who destroyed the party are the ones calling him and his allies boys. Recall that the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu had described the people calling for his resignation from office as children. Ayu further stated that he would not allow the people to destroy the party ahead of the 2023 general elections. The camp of Governor Wike, which includes the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, and Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu have been calling for Ayu’s resignation. Wike, however, thinks the people calling him and his allies children are responsible for the destruction of the main opposition party. The Rivers State Governor noted that the boys stayed behind and kept the party working when others left. He charged the people of Rivers State not to be intimidated by anybody as the election season draws closer. The PDP Governor said he pity any Rivers man going to pick crumbs from the table. Governor Wike called on the people of Rivers State to take over their rightful place. The former presidential aspirant stated this on Tuesday at the commissioning of the Etche campus of the Rivers State University in the Etche local government area of the state.
